Concrete pumping is one of the most important practices used in modern construction, and over the years there has been a constant growth in innovative concrete pumping solutions being seen on the marketplace. One of those innovative ideas is high rise concrete pumping.
Not too long ago, high rise concreting used to be an incredibly drawn out, tedious task. Back in the day, to construct a high rise building, it involved concrete being hoisted up in buckets by cranes. Although this method of concreting was successful, it was very time consuming and dangerous.
High rise concrete pumping enables operators to pour concrete into locations which would typically be out of reach with a traditional concrete pumping method. This methodology is becoming much more prevalent in the modern construction site, with more and more high rises being built into cities and towns by the day. It’s saving builders time and money and has revolutionised the way people in the construction industry look at concreting.
High rise concrete pumping isn’t as much of a complicated process as it may seem. For most high rise concrete pumps, a boom concrete pump will be attached to a truck. The pump will have a robotic arm, which enables the operator to control the transfer of the concrete very precisely. These robotic arms are very heavily powered, which assist the operator to reach the exact height the builder wants. The arms differ in length, meaning they can be tailored to a specific site’s needs. They also easily extend and retract at the press of a button.
High rise concrete pumping can be adapted to many different sites outside of strictly high rise buildings. High rise concrete pumping is fantastic for restricted access work on sites where you are unable to enter the area that needs pumping with a conventional concrete pumping machine. For construction sites that have close quarters, speaking to a professional about your options with a high rise pump is never a bad bet. High rise concrete pumps can be used in commercial construction or civil construction. To avoid nasty mistakes and on-site hiccups, it’s always important to have an experienced operator at the wheel when you’re looking at high rise concrete pump hire.
High rise concrete pumping can probably go further than you imagined. Interestingly, the highest anyone has ever pumped concrete stands at a whopping 606 vertical metres. This was achieved back in April of 2008, when a Putzmeister 14000 SHP D super high pressure concrete pump helped build the Burj Dubai Tower in Dubai.
